EU: SMART BORDERS PILOT PROJECT: Council of the European Union: Smart Borders Package pilot project: political guidelines

The pilot will cover entry and exit at all borders: land, sea and air and: "The pilot project should in particular test the following aspects:

– the impact of biometrics' use on border control processes: testing different biometric identifiers for enrolment in EES (10 fingerprints in combination with facial image; 8 fingerprints in combination with facial image; 4 fingerprints in combination with facial image; facial image only); using several types of biometric devices (existing technology at border posts, last generation of fingerprint scanners, contactless fingerprint scanners, hand-held devices, Automated Border Control (ABC) gates or electronic (e-) gates). The option of the facial image could in particular be tested in case of cruises."
